Ok, class, quiet down, we have much to cover today!I tried to use some stash material this week. I did, I really did. I’ve had this mold-inspired floral cottony stuff in the closet for a few months- by the way- it has the distinction of being the ‘ugliest fabric I’ve ever seen you wear’ according to my sainted Mother. That is saying something if you know the woman who dressed me during my formative years. But enough about my need for therapy- lets talk about the blouse!Burda must have farmed out the instructions to another company- it was so easy! I may have made a misstep at the front neck facing- it seemed sort of clumsy- I think that I will redraft it into fewer pieces for next time- cuz there will be a next time. I think it needs a little tapering at the sides- it’s perhaps a bit boxier than necessary. Can you go wrong with something that matches your saddle shoes so well? The Husband proclaimed it a perfect Disney blouse- it looked ‘cool and comfortable’. Maybe I’ll make him one, too. We can look like Hansel and Gretel- a Grimm tale of over-eating! But I want to talk about more important things than my love of spore blouses. I got prezzies in the mail from Funnygrrl!Look- is my new pincushion wristlet not the end all? I believe that it is. I have much reading to do!! This book is great! Thank you!! Thank you!!
So the spirit of giving has entered my tiny soul and I must expel it quickly…..So I want to start another Pattern Pyramid! Did you make that? has been spreading much love and I want to play too! Ok, this shape is not exactly pyramidic- but you get the plan, right? Are you tempted? Oh please be tempted!So if you want a chance to get the first South Carolina (but not limited to) spin-off of the Amazing Karen’s Amazing Pattern Pyramid- just let me know in the comments- you all must know the drill by now. I let Bruderelin select 1 name from the comments- lets say we do it on the 15th of September.
…and we’ll get this show on the road! Please don’t think I’m trying to steal this from Karen- it just looked like so much fun and even more attention for The Brooke….the charity that Karen’s pattern gifting friend is supporting. *Bruderlein would also like to remind you that his gastritis keeps him from eating rawhide, but all other bribes will be considered in his selection process.
**He also says that you don’t need to be a follower of the ‘Grievances to enter- people who follow ‘Mummy’ have often ended up lost……
